of the policy committee and i have the ambition to visit or hold an event for every single one of our eu partners next year. we will work to enhance the predictability and clarity we offer business, how that promotes the u.k. international attractiveness, and how that benefits us here in the uk. we are responsible for over 120,000 jobs in the u.k., a huge total, mostly outside london, not least in scotland where i grew up and to which i owe so much. one-quarter of the workers contribute hugely to a text take in life and happiness of our communities. they are all part of society, as is my swedish bank, in which i have work when it opened 30 years and two days ago. we should highlight the importance of the city support for those who keep us it. our armed forces and the uniformed security services. we know the government intends to shape the understanding that better enable volunteers to serve the forces. in an uncertain world with the security of shipping lanes and trade routes are as critical to the country's prosperity as ever, defense is everyone's business. finally, we shall highlight
